Patient satisfaction ratings and reviews are based on personal opinions. Before you choose any doctor you should take into account their background, training, specialized experience AND their patient satisfaction to ensure they are the right fit for you.
As a Board Eligible Orthopaedic Surgeon at the Hand Center of Nevada in Las Vegas, I perform a variety of procedures to help alleviate the pain and discomfort associated with conditions such as carpal tunnel syndrome, trigger finger, ganglion cysts, fractures of the hand, and more. After earning my medical degree at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, I underwent fellowship training in surgery of the hand, upper extremity, and microsurgery. Additionally, under the direction of Dr. Scott Kozin at the Shriner's Hospital of Philadelphia, I gained experience related to a variety of pediatric conditions, including duplicated digits and fractures of the growth plate. I have always had a passion for medicine and at the Hand Center of Nevada, I, along with my entire team, are dedicated to providing compassionate, personalized care to each and every one of our patients.
Patients are Partners. I believe that patients play a critical role in determining their treatment. All patients receive a thorough evaluation that includes learning about your injury, as well as your personal interests, occupation, hobbies, and lifestyle – factors that influence selecting an individualized treatment plan. I treat Patients, not Xrays. While imaging, such as xrays, CT scans, and MRIs have the ability to help identify problems and sources of pain, I focus on addressing each patient's concerns and fears. Treatment will be focused on you, not your test results. Not all Patients require Surgery. Sometimes the best treatment is not surgery. I always consider the side effects and complications of surgery, and any recommendation for surgical treatment involves a careful consideration of both the risks and benefits.
